Here are the show notes for Episode 41:  
On the Needles: 
Knitting Projects - 
FO's:  n/a

Vanilla Supergirl socks for E.  Doing the toes and cuffs in Hedgehog Fibers Electric blue, body in Madtosh red. 

Runa by Gudrun Johnston.  Loving the rhythm of the seed stitch.  Had a change in shade from one skein to the other, so now I'm feathering in the new skeins.

Prayer shawl for church.

Celestarium by Audrey Nickels.  Using a local yarn from Spruce Dragon called Twinkle in the Midnight Blue II color way.  Using different colored beads for the different magnitudes of the stars.  Started before the eclipse last year, and it's kind of been on hiatus since it's a knit I have to pay attention to.  Currently just over halfway through the F charts, which puts me at 66% done with 576 stitches/round, although it feels like more.

Stalking:  blending boards, Mix #34 cowl (dragon scale cowl)

Acquisitions -  Tricked out Ewe, Hand Maiden Maiden Hair yarn.  Black watch plaid waxed canvas project bag by tanneicasey on Etsty.

Spinning Projects - fiber swap with Spinners with Altitude was a success.  Christy brought her blending board and let us all play around making some rolags.  There wasn't a bad one in the bunch.  Alpaca on a spindle.  Green merino singles.

Under the Needle:
Sewing Projects - Prairie Woman Sewing Circle, 16 blocks for March were sewn together, basted, quilted, and binding sewn on.  Sent fabric scraps to another podcaster, and she gifted me a pattern in my queue.  Thanks Jennie!

In the Garden: Finally warmed up enough for me to spin outside.  Promptly got a sunburn.  Still need to do yard work.

In the Beeyard - I've been slowly cleaning up my equipment.  Looking for a new location.

Off Topic:  Allergies are the bane of my existence. Research for trip to Croatia.  Run for the roses is only a few weeks away.
BatterUpKAL with InASknit.  Splash Pad Party KAL with Boston Jen of Down Cellar Studio.
Watching/Listening:  The X-Files in advance of the reboot.  The Truth Is Out There!

Thanks for watching!
